Gamers in the Indian community have been eagerly awaiting the launch of PUBG mobile game. While there have been several PUBG Corporation reports expanding its team in India and its plans to partner with Google, the game's release date remains a mystery. Here is all that we know about.
Will it release in 2021? A report had previously said that PUBG Mobile India could be available to gamers in the New Years. The expectation grew when a website launched a fictitious download link. However, a company official said that the Battle Royale game might not launch till March 2021. "Efforts from PUBG were made in the right earnest, but the situation is such that there has been no headwind or progress on the matter. We don't see the game making a comeback in India for the next few months, at least not before March 2021. It's unfortunate, but everyone has to live with it," an official from PUBG Corporation said in an InsideSport report.
Has the government permitted the company to launch the PUBG game?
Earlier last week, there was a report that the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) did not grant any permission to launch the PUBG game. "MeitY does not grant permission to start any website/mobile application/service. Consequently, MeitY has not granted permission to PUBG / PUBG mobile India," stated the ministry in response to the RTI submitted by MediaNama. Furthermore, a spokesperson for MeitY's Press Information Office (PIB) confirmed that PUBG Mobile India had not received authorization to operate in India again. PUBG registration from an India-based company called PUBG India does not mean necessarily anything.
PUBG's parent company Krafton is also taking several measures on behalf of India to ensure PUBG Mobile returns to India. Just two days ago the company had recently appointed a new country manager for India. Now if we believe the reports, more people have been added to the team. Aneesh Aravind was named PUBG Mobile India Country Manager. New people recruited to the team include Akash Jumde, who will work as a visual content designer, Piyush Agarwal as a finance manager, Arpita Priyadarshini is the senior community manager Karan Pathak is named a senior sports manager, according to a report from Insidesport.
There is a good news for the PUBG lovers. The PUBG creators of the game are working on launching PUBG Mobile India with some unique features. The user interface and appearance are expected to be different from the global version of the game. PUBG Mobile India characters are said to be fully dressed.
